what kind of bullshit is this? shouldn't there be a moment where particles aren't intersecting and they just phase through each other?

    reality takes precedence over theories, they either aren't empty space or there's more at play that you think there is. The observable fact that things doesnt phase through each other is finalz unless under some obscure never yet seen conditions it could happen.

    Who in the frick discovered atoms and what proof do we have about them?

      Dalton theorized atoms in the 19th century, since the ratio of masses of pure elements would always be a small ratio.

      Bragg diffraction is pretty solid evidence of the existence of atoms. now we can image atoms with TEM and STM....

      The better question is who made up electrons, protons and neutrons.

      Because there is no evidence for any of that.
      Outside of brain rot like

      Electrons are the biggest bullshit out there.

    You have to consider the statistical likelihood of that occurring in the first place, and additionally the continued occurrence of that through a time period. Which is extremely improbable.

    Solid objects can't phase through each other because while atoms are mostly empty space, their portions which are comprised of charged particles wouldn't allow this to happen due to opposing fields pushing on each other.

    what an awful thread wow

    anyway op let me clear this up by letting you know that "empty space" doesnt mean what you think it means

    So I know you think you're smart but you graduated due to blind luck and you don't really belong with everyone else who runs laps around you intellectually. Stop pretending to be smart by throwing around words like "phase" and "statistical" when you barely have a cursory understanding of gen-ed physics.

      hasn't that been disproven?

        Electromagnetic interaction is transmitted through fields that propagate at finite speed and therefore is not action at a distance

          what if you move faster than the fields propagation?

            You can't, the field is made up of photons so it propagates at the speed of light. Nothing with mass can achieve this speed and things without mass will move exactly at this speed. However, if you want to phase through something, quantically speaking there's a non-zero chance you can through quantum tunneling, that's how some electronic microscopes work nowadays.

            can't we just reduce our mass to zero by lowering our energy state, since mass and energy are equivalent? like supercooling ourselves near zero kelvin. then you have no energy, therefore no mass, and you can approach the speed of light.

            Assuming you could decrease your temperature to zero kelvin, the total kinect energy of the particles that compose you would be zero, because they would not be moving anymore, but they would still have mass, so you still wouldn't be able to accelerate yourself to the speed of light.

            what if you converted every particle into a massless counterpart via the strong/weak interaction, then transmit it, then resynthesize them into mass particles?

    Science.
    All of science is bullshit.

    >atoms are 99.9999999999996% empty space
    Fun fact this is literally made up. Literally made up with no evidence.

    They keep making up new fables how atoms work every 10 years or so.
